Have your say

SHEFFIELD Sharks point guard Ryan Patton has spoken warmly about his backcourt partner Jimmy Langhurst.

Patton, who returned to the club last week, has already struck up a good relationship with fellow Ohioian Langhurst. He said: “Jimmy is a good kid with lots of talent.

“We’re from the same area of Ohio, probably about 45 minutes apart. I’ve seen him in the summer over in the States and he’s turning into a great professional in what is his first job. He’s playing with a lot of energy and has got a real hunger for the games.”

Sharks take on MK Lions tomorrow night at the EIS.
